French architecture studio Hekla has created an unusual wooden frame design for the reception space and sampling rooms of Analabo, a medical analysis laboratory in Bordeaux, France.

“The challenge of the project was to rethink the universe and the principles of medical architecture.” say the architects. “The space was defined by two light entries : the front door and picture window. The volume is voluntarily open, plays with this light and leads it in every area of the laboratory.”

“A wooden frame set rhythm the space and composes it. The beams are extended to the walls to draw legs that structure the reception area and waiting room. Between these frames are inscribed the cupboards, furniture and benches. Custom-designed for each space, the furniture becomes integrated with strength and consistency.”

“In this white and delicate volume blends light wood to the felt to offer us a new perspective on the medical universe.”
